AR Rahman to perform live at Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar’s 2.0 audio launch in Dubai
Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman gave a live performance at the audio release function of Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s Mersal in Chennai earlier this month. He performed a 20-minute concert set singing three songs from the music album and played a solo number on his piano.
If the reports are to be believed, he will also repeat the same for the upcoming sci-fi film 2.0, starring Superstar Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar in the lead roles. An audio release event will be held in Dubai, reportedly, on October 27. And the filmmakers have requested Rahman to give the live stage performance of the songs that he has composed for the mega-budget film at the grand event.
2.0 is directed by Shankar, which is being made on a lavish budget of Rs 450 crores. It is a sequel to the director’s 2010 blockbuster sci-fi drama Enthiran. The film will hit the screens worldwide on 25 January 2018.
